Egypt's climate is hot and dry most of the year. During the winter months (Dec-Feb), average daily temperatures are around 68F on the Mediterranean coast and around 80F in Aswan. It can be quite cool in the evening, especially when on the Nile River. In January, the country can be cooler, down to the 50s and 60s. Egypt has a very dry climate, which makes a temperature of 80F feel much cooler than it would in a humid, tropical climate.

Note: Ramadan, the Islamic month of daytime fasting, occurs from approximately June 28 to July 27 in 2014. During Ramadan, there may be reduced restaurant/bar facilities in hotels.
